i'm trying to find the next mark zuckerberg. i'm in coffeeshops in san francisco meeting with entrepreneurs, i probably go to 10 to 15 different start-ups during a week. i want to find big disruptive ideas. >> rose: but with ideas before they've done anything to move forward on the ideas. >> absolutely. sometimes it is an entrepreneur that has an idea that hasn't even started coding it yet but they have done something previously that was interesting. so i know they have the means to go about building something. and they just want to, you know, brainstorm with me and white board some of these ideas out. >> farther of-- part of what we are looking for is we're investing in teams and people, more than products at the early stages. so you are looking for larry and sergei as they were starting out. because they're what made google different from lycos and the other search engines. so we're looking for people that fit that mold. >> rose: and how do you find them? and what are they like? >> two questions so, how do we find them. this is a social business. so it has to do with network

how we do it in san francisco, the scanner tabulates, it looks at the paper ballot and tan hates the results and tremendous end zero at the end it gives you the counts, afterwards you can check on the computer and the scanner because you have the original paper ballots that the voter filled out so the voter knows they accurately reflect the voters' will. >> rose: what is the worst thing that has happened with voter machines? >> that is difficult, we may not know, we may not know. >> rose: okay. but is there any 11 in lawyer being the most famous case of voting machines irregularities? >> well, i would actually push back a little on that, because the machines in florida. >> rose: the problem -- >> of course it was a problem in 2000 bus that was paper, hanging chads, that's right, it was, but the vote in florida was all paper. well at that point they had machines tabulating the paper but the computers came in florida in 2002 where they had problems again because the machines took a lot of time to start up and people were disenfranchised. >> rose: and people would be disenfranchised
